Yeah, was thinking the same thing. Seeing as they are one of the, if not the, best looking games on the AppStore, it is a shock to see them both not updated for iPhone 5/iPod Touch 5th gen. support yet.

Some of you might've seen this comming, but i won't be updating this thread anymore. This is because of a couple of reasons:

Personal interest in these updates has dvindled down a lot, a lot of the apps i wanted to get updated has already been so and most new apps are alteady in widescreen.

These updates aldo take up a bunch of my time, half to a whole hour every day. With both work and school i simply don't have the time anymore.

Appshopper app will soon allow for easy widescreen-finding and so make my work mostly obsolete.

I appreciate all the kind words and hope to see you all on forums
